Looks like it's that time again...

Well, it’s always time for stupidity. I was looking through updates on facebook and there it was… A National Post Article on copyright. As I have an interest in the existing provisions of the copyright act as we currently know it, I thought it would be a good read.

Reading through it, it appears that our Industry minister is in the middle of fast tracking a DMCA like ammendment or law, contrary to the wishes of the public, the retailers, broadcasters, telcos and ISPs. It would only be to please the branch offices of the companies behind all the nuisance lawsuits south of the border.

I for one think that the existing version is sufficient, although an update to cover modern media and technologies may be required, but the spirit should remain the same.

Oh well, we’ll see what happens. I think we are about to be done in by the very people who should be protecting us.
